Let's PULL together a team!

The Orbis Plane Pull is just one month away and we need you to help us PULL together a team!

Orbis is an international non-profit that fights avoidable blindness by training eye care teams, strengthening eye health systems and working on the ground to provide lasting solutions to communities in need.

We have the opportunity to raise money to support this amazing organization and have a whole lot of fun doing it! We need 20 people to join our Team YYC Plane Pull team, and one of those 20 people is YOU!

When: Saturday, June 16, 10:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

What:  Pull a 60-tonne FedEx 757 Cargo Plane a set distance, in the least amount of time. There is a $20 per-puller registration fee, and a commitment to raise an additional $30. The Airport Authority is matching what our team raises to a maximum of $1,000.

Where: FedEx Ramp, Calgary International Airport, 24 Aero Dr NE, Calgary, AB T2E 8Z9

Why: Because 80 per cent of people who face blindness suffer conditions that could be prevented, treated or cured and 90 per cent of all visually impaired people — 253 million people — live in places where it can be difficult to get the right treatment. Supporting the Orbis plane pull means helping people get access to lifesaving treatment.
